Ickenham and District Society of Model
Engineers which turned 65 this year, is appealing to the youth of Middlesex to come and experience the joys of model engineering.
The Ickenham based club currently has around 75 members a fair number of whom are of retirement age. They would like to encourage more young people to join. The group is appealing to the community to come and find out more about what they do and use their exceptional facilities.
Not only does the society have its own club house but those with a specific interest in engineering, can benefit from the extensive heavy duty machinery which most home sheds can’t house. Access to this selection of fine tools can help with all projects big and small.
Meetings run on several nights of the week including dedicated nights to small scale modelling, personal projects and organised talks with guest speakers and demonstrations.
A popular draw to the club is their scale locomotives and passenger trolleys that provide rides on the first Saturday of each month from April to December.
Mel Fuller, Chairman of the Ickenham and District Society of Model Engineers said: “At the age of 65 most people are preparing to wind down for retirement, but not our club. Our members have many years of experience and knowledge they would like to share with the younger generation. And with our unrivalled facilities, our group would be perfect for students considering entering a career in engineering.
“We’re not just about model engineering either. One of our members is currently
helping to restore a full size WW2 R.A.F launch at Hendon Museum and another has recently had his ‘EM’ layout published in a national railway modelling magazine, a loco from which will be displayed
at the London Model Engineering Exhibition at the Alexandra Palace in January 2014, so there’s plenty to get hands on with.”
